Grass is a non-solid plant block that has wheat seeds as a drop. Its color is biome-dependent, and matches the color of grass blocks.

Tall grass[a] is a two-block high variety of grass.

Ferns are variants of grass found only in certain biomes and have the same characteristics as grass.

Large ferns are a two-block high variety of ferns.

Obtaining[edit]

Breaking[edit]

When broken normally, all variants drop 0 or 1 wheat seeds. They can be obtained as an item using shears.

The double tall grass and large ferns drop two of the respective single blocks when broken using shears. By planting a single fern, growing it with bone meal and then using shears on the resulting tall fern, a single fern yields two ferns.

Natural generation[edit]

Grass[edit]

Grass generates on grass blocks in most biomes with a grassy soil, like plains or forests. Tall grass generates in plains and savannas. There is approximately 8.6 tall grass per chunk.

Ferns[edit]

Ferns occur naturally only in jungle, taiga, snowy taiga and giant tree taiga biomes. Large ferns generate in the same biomes, excluding jungles. Large ferns can be found in some taiga and snowy taiga village houses.

Trading[edit]

Wandering traders can sell ferns for one emerald.

Post-generation[edit]

Bone meal can be used on a grass block to grow grass, ferns‌[Bedrock Edition only] and occasionally flowers on it and in its vicinity. It can also be used on grass or a fern to create a tall grass or large fern, respectively.

Usage[edit]

Double tall plants have a disproportionately large hitbox compared to other plants, which is a feature intentionally programmed into the game.[1][2] The only exception to this rule is tall seagrass.

Flower pots[edit]

Ferns can be placed in flower pots.

Composting[edit]

Placing grass into a composter has a 30% chance of raising the compost level by 1.

Placing tall grass into a composter has a 50% chance of raising the compost level by 1.

Placing a fern into a composter has a 65% chance of raising the compost level by 1.

History[edit]

This section is missing information about grass was brighter in the inventory in 1.5 and before - changed when?.
Please expand the section to include this information. Further details may exist on the talk page.
Java Edition Beta
1.6Test Build 3Grass JE1 BE1.png Fern JE1 BE1.png Dead Bush JE1 BE1.png All one-block variants of grass have been implemented.[3] Seeds could be produced by tilling grass blocks prior to this update.
1.6.6Bone meal can now be used to instantly grow tall grass on grass blocks.
1.8Pre-releaseGrass and ferns can now be harvested with shears. Previously, tall grass could not be acquired as an item without the use of external tools. Tall grass in the inventory would appear as its grayscale texture, and would appear as the 'shrub' variety or the dead bush when placed.
Swamp biomes have been redesigned and rain forest biomes have been removed entirely, so triangular ferns no longer generate.
Java Edition
1.0.0Beta 1.9 Prerelease 6Ferns are now available in the creative inventory.
1.111w49aGrass can now be eaten by sheep.
1.2.112w03aFerns now generate in jungle biomes.
12w05aPlacing a block while selecting grass now overwrite the grass, similar to snow. Previously, grass had to be broken to place blocks in that space.
1.4.2?The sound for grass blocks when walking on it has been changed. How this affects tall grass is unknown.
1.513w02aGrass with values over 2 now cause a game crash when rendered.
13w10aGreen Shrub.png Tall grass with a damage value of 3 or higher is still called 'grass', and still has green biome coloring, but is now shaped like a shrub or dead bush, as opposed to looking exactly like grass as previously.
1.7.213w36aTall Grass JE1 BE1.png Large Fern JE1 BE1.png Added double tall grass and large ferns.
Ferns now spawn in taiga and cold taiga biomes.
Double tallgrass with values over 5 now cause a game crash when rendered.
1.8.114w25aThe textures for grass and double tallgrass have been made slightly brighter.
pre1Added facing state to minecraft:double_plant, though without visible effect.
1.1317w47aThe different block states for the tallgrass and double_plant IDs have been split up into their own IDs.
"Double Tallgrass" has been renamed to "Tall Grass", and it has a new ID: tall_grass.
Prior to The Flattening, these block's numeral IDs were 31 (one-block variants) and 175 (two-block variants).
1.1418w43aGrass JE2.png Fern JE2 BE2.png Tall Grass JE2 BE2.png Large Fern JE2 BE2.png The textures of grass, ferns, tall grass, large ferns have been changed.

19w03aPlacing grass into the new composter now has a 10% chance of raising the compost level by 1.
Placing tall grass into the composter now has a 20% chance of increasing the compost level by 1.
Placing a fern into the composter now has a 50% chance of raising the compost level by 1.
19w05aGrass now has a 30% chance of increasing the compost level in a composter by 1.
Tall grass now has a 50% chance of increasing the compost level by 1.
Ferns now have a 65% chance of increasing the compost level by 1.
1.1519w37aLarge ferns can now drop wheat seeds.[4]

build 5Tall grass is no longer flammable.
v0.11.0build 14Double tallgrass and large fern pixels are now square.
Tall grass and ferns now have a random height.
0.12.1?One-block high grass and ferns can now occupy the same space as snow layers.
v0.14.0build 3Hitboxes of all variants of tall grass no longer occupy an entire block.
Bedrock Edition
1.10.0beta 1.10.0.3Grass JE3 BE2.png Fern JE2 BE2.png Tall Grass JE2 BE2.png Large Fern JE2 BE2.png The textures of grass, ferns, tall grass and large ferns have been changed.

Issues[edit]

Issues relating to "Grass", "Fern", "Double Tallgrass", or "Large Fern" are maintained on the bug tracker. Report issues there.

Trivia[edit]

  • Grass cannot be directly set on fire from lightning. However, fire from nearby blocks can spread to it. Oddly enough, the top of grass can be lit but it does not burn this way. When any kind of grass is set on fire, the fire seems to hover just over the grass, as if it were a full block.
  • Even though ferns do not produce seeds in real life, as they emit spores instead, they can drop seeds if broken.
  • Grass is slightly offset from the block it is sitting on (as seen in the second screenshot). This causes fields of grass to appear more contiguous.
    • This can sometimes cause grass to clip horizontally or vertically through block corners.[5]
  • Grass can appear in caves on dirt near lava, and rarely, within a few blocks of bedrock. They can also occasionally generate on blocks other than grass, such as sand on beaches or in village buildings.
  • Using bone meal on grass in a spawn-protected area on a server still produces grass and flowers.
  • Placing any block on grass overwrites the grass, and the grass does not drop seeds.
  • The texture for Grass is based on the grass texture from an early version of one of Notch's games, Prelude Of The Chambered
